3* Saturday Half Day Ride 3*
Leader:
Nick Stokell
Start Time:
1:00 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
Half day ride (60-70km / 38-45 miles), with a tea stop, riding pace of 20-24km/h (13-15mph). Likely to visit distant destinations. Not suitable for irregular riders. Climbing likely.

Please note the 1300 start time!

Hilly ride to Stanford Dingley (and back) - but we will re-group at the tops of the climbs. Passing through some of the quieter downland and Pang Valley lanes with a tea stop at Hilliers GC at Hermitage.

I thought it was worth re-visiting this route but it can't easily be fitted into a morning without encroaching on the afternoon. Should be back in Grove by 1730.

Report:
Cracking afternoon for a ride! At last we had the warm sun on our backs and light winds. Once Chain Hill was behind us (first ascent for Roger - well done!) the group kept together pretty well and enjoyed the quiet lanes across the downs and along the Pang Valley. After Stanford Dingley the two climbs made themselves felt and for most us the tea stop at Hermitage was very welcome - Phil and Jason skipped the stop and headed for home, probably at high speed if I know them! The remaining 6 enjoyed a leisurely stop then made our way back stopping for a quick photo opportunity at the top of Woolley Hill (message to self - store phone in bag to prevent sweat on the lens!).

Thank you everyone for your company, and keeping the effort up on quite a challenging ride.
